With 68g of protein per 100g, our Organic Rice Protein Powder is a hypoallergenic, complete protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids). Proteins are the building blocks of the body used to make muscles, tendons, organs and skin as well as being used to make hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and various tiny molecules that serve various functions.
Rice protein is especially high in the sulphur containing amino acids methionine and cysteine – methionine is one of only 3 amino acids that help your body to build creatine, a protein necessary for muscle growth as well as energy. Cysteine is one of the main building blocks for the protein glutathione – this is the only intracellular antioxidant found and as such it is able to maintain cells’ health and performance and resist disease by neutralising free radicals also keeping other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E in their active form.
These nutritional attributes make it a great protein powder for athletes and body-builders as during intense exercise the muscle fibres break down and go into protein synthesis – to gain muscle mass protein synthesis must exceed protein breakdown. Rice protein is also high in the amino acid leucine with 6.4g per 100g, leucine levels must be on or above 2g – 3g to maximise muscle protein synthesis.
Our fruit and vegetable powders are slow-dried to preserve the nutritional content and are 100% natural with nothing added. This makes these powders a perfect choice for using as natural flavourings and colourings.
It’s simple and easy to benefit from the goodness of these superfood fruit and vegetable powders by adding them to smoothies for a superfood boost. However they can be used extensively in food preparation.
Try experimenting with the intense flavours in making raw chocolate, icecream, flapjacks, cakes, breads, biscuits, pancakes to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Fruit and Vegetable powders page.
This is a ready to eat powder and can be added to water, fruit juice, milk, smoothie or protein shake. Great protein boost before and after a workout.

Indigo Herbs Rice Protein Powder starts life as organically grown non-GM brown rice, is free from artificial pollutants, and grown in a sparsely populated rural environment in China.
After harvest the rice is selected, cleaned, milled into rice flour and mixed with water. Special enzymes are then added to the rice flour water that break down the rice starch before being filtered to remove the carbohydrate. A pure rice protein cake is the result which is then dried and sifted into a fine powder. After testing the high quality Rice Protein Powder is ready to be packed and shipped.

I give it four stars because I have only just started using the product and I need to analyse its effects over a longer period of time.
